Are you a bit of an adventurer, but like to enjoy a nice glass of wine as well? Then Harvest Tours has the perfect country escape for you! Our Indulge and Discover Tour covers all your bases, with opportunities to explore impressive caves and marvel at picturesque ocean views, while still stopping to sip premium wines and taste local, gourmet produce. Our passionate team has over 10 years of experience, and so your local guide will also give a knowledgeable, informative commentary on the region while you enjoy the sights and experiences.
The highlight of our Margaret River discovery tour is definitely visiting Lake Cave - where you will have an adventurous experience entering into a cave from the floor of a stunning sunken forest surrounded by soaring karri trees. This fascinating underground wonderland features a calm lake that perfectly mirrors the crystal formations growing at its edges, as well as the impressive ‘suspended table’ that hangs just above the surface of the water. You will need to bring sensible walking shoes for this section of the tour, so that you can explore the cave unhindered, and really take in the experience. It is the deepest of the show caves on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, and a ‘must-see’ attraction for any visitor to the region.
For our premium tour, we stop at only the most highly regarded wineries in Margaret River, so of course we have to visit Vasse Felix - Margaret River’s founding wine estate. Vasse Felix was established in 1967, and their expert winemakers strive to produce wines that express the very best of the region. Margaret River’s isolation and maritime influence make it the perfect environment to create Vasse Felix’s specialties, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blends. On our tour, we will stop at Vasse Felix for some wine tastings, followed by a gourmet three-course lunch at their chef-hatted restaurant. Just relax and take in the serenity of the surrounding vineyard setting, while tucking into their indulgent cuisine, and enjoying two glasses of included premium wine.
A stop at Yahava Koffeeworks in Margaret River is the perfect start to the journey, as it’s sure to give you plenty of energy for the exciting day ahead. Yahava is a well-loved, local WA company that sources coffee beans from all around the globe. They offer a range of different coffees for you to try on their tasting benches, and an expert will walk you through the options while explaining how each cup is brewed - you can even watch the beans being freshly roasted right in front of you while you indulge in the sweeter side of coffee.
We know what you will be craving this early in the morning - so we have organised a stop at Yahava to be first on our list.
To kickstart the discovery part of our journey, we will be exploring Lake Cave for the second stop on the tour.
Here, you will taste some premium wines from a minimal intervention, biodynamic vineyard, along with a selection of free-range meats.
It’s time for a wine tasting break, so we will visit Vasse Virgin to check out their range of gourmet foods and have the opportunity to try some olive oil skincare products.
You will spend a relaxing couple of hours enjoying a seated wine tasting and three-course lunch accompanied with two glasses of wine paired with your meal.
Margaret River specialities of blended Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Merlot and the varietals of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Lenton Brae also produces some newer sweater styles and varietals.
After all this excitement, you will probably be ready for something sweet, and Gabriel Chocolate Factory’s range of award-winning gourmet chocolates are the best choice.
Before heading home, we will also stop at Wild Hop Brewing Company for a palate cleansing pint of ale or lager.
